    well i dont know if this is the right section to put this in but hopefully it is. to start my buff orpingtons my brahma my silver laced wyandotte my cochinss are 5 weeks old now will be 6 weeks next week on wednesday i ordered them from ideal poultry and they have light pink combs and waddles already and i ordered them as pullets and im starting to think not so much on the pullet thing i dont remember my original flock getting combs and waddles this early im scared that they will all be cockerels and not pullets like i ordered.

    Pics would be the best way to go, as would checking out the tails of the chickens.
